Christmas Wish

Magic 96 and MSCU Team Up for Christmas Wishes

Mutual Savings Credit Union has partnered with area radio station Magic 96.5 to help brighten the holiday season through Magic 96.5’s Christmas Wish program. Magic 96.5 listeners can help grant Christmas wishes for neighbors or family members in need of clothing, toys, groceries or other type of financial assistance.

Through the Christmas Wish program, families and individuals receive much-needed gifts and the true holiday spirit is put on full display. Both traits are what intrigued Mutual Savings about the partnership with Magic 96.5.

“It’s wonderful to be a part of something that makes the holidays so much better,” said Sonja Purvis, Chief Marketing and Development Officer for Mutual Savings Credit Union. “It’s special to see the listeners that nominate people for a Christmas wish and the people that have their wish granted get equal enjoyment out of the program.”

Magic 96.5 grants a Christmas wish each day leading up to Christmas and listeners have been encouraged to nominate deserving friends or family members by emailing the candidate’s information and details to As seen in previous years, the kindness shown for Christmas Wish nominees is a sight to behold.

“The only thing bigger than Christmas music on Magic 96.5 is our Christmas Wish program,” said Tom Hanrahan, Regional Program Director and Clear Channel Birmingham’s Operations Manager. “Through the generosity of our listeners and the incredible support from corporate partners like Mutual Savings Credit Union, needy families throughout the Birmingham area are assisted in their time of critical need.”
